The guests created a heart shape for a photo as requested by the bride. It took a few minutes to get it together but it worked perfectly considering the extreme afternoon temperature for this summer wedding.

A word about the wedding bands. The grooms is a replica of a Green Lantern Power Ring, a super hero from DC Comics charged with policing space. Green Lantern has always been one of his favorite super heroes due to his ring being fueled by his own Willpower and it’s only weakness being his own Fears (embodied by the color Yellow).

The brides ring is a 14k Black Gold, Black Diamond ring in the shape of a lotus flower. She has always liked darker colors and wished to express her uniqueness with this non conventional ring. The lotus flower shape as well plays an important role in some works of fiction she enjoys.

The story continues…

One of the oldest planets in the universe, Oa serves as the home and headquarters for a race of blue-skinned powerful humanoids who have dubbed themselves the Guardians of the Universe. The Guardians administer the Green Lantern Corps, a group of powerful universal police officers equipped by the Guardians with green-colored power rings along with green lanterns with which to charge the rings.

According to the story “Heart of a Star” in the Sandman: Endless Nights graphic novel, Oa’s star is called Sto-Oa (the Light of Oa) by the children of the planet’s inhabitants. Its location has been firmly established by numerous references in Green Lantern comics over the years. It was formerly the center of the universe until the events of Infinite Crisis.

Oa’s history is not clear; according to some stories, the Guardians originated on a planet called Maltus. These evolved Maltusians later moved to Oa and named themselves Oans. Oa became a convenient base of operations. Other stories had the Oans living there from the beginning.

This wedding is one of several we have photographed with truly unique themes. Congratulations to Michael and Ginny on their marriage at The Secret Garden officiated by Rev. Gary Davids on 12/13/14.
